Usnic Acid: Extracted from the alpine lichen Usnea barbata, this completely plant-derived active demonstrates multiple actions: antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, protectant and wound healing. It helps to regulate excessive sebum production and maintain the epidermis’ natural pH.
Plant sugars: Plant-derived sugars that help optimize circulation of water throughout all skin layers, limit water loss and boost production of natural hyaluronic acid.
Clinical results showed that these plant sugars reduced desquamation by 25% and smoothed skin’s micro-relief by 30% after 28 days.
Shiso leaf (Perilla, Japanese mint):M Rich in polyphenols (particularly Rosmarinic acid) and triterpenoids (particularly Ursolic acid), natural molecules that demonstrate antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-allergic bioactivities. Shiso leaf acts as a powerful antioxidant defending skin from free radical damage. It helps to prevent skin reactivity and soothes sensitive skin. Shiso leaf is well-known in Kampo medicine for its strong detox properties.
Vitamin E: An antioxidant with a key role in the protection of cellular membranes from free radicals. It is the major antioxidant in the human epidermis with strong protective effects against UV-induced skin damage.

Zelens is a unique range blended with a remarkable number of unique ingredients, to prevent the signs of ageing whilst improving skin’s current tone and texture. In addition to new biotech actives, the range uses potent plant-derived ingredients, working in synergy to protect, regenerate and repair the skin. Zelens products combine powerful high-performance active biotechnology ingredients with the unique blend of plant-derived molecules with potent anti-aging and healing properties.
But simply combining ingredients derived from both sources does not create truly effective skin care. Ingredients must be carefully selected, science-backed and integrated in a formula to work in synergy. Only the exact balance and synergistic action of all ingredients can effectively trigger cellular processes necessary for skin regeneration and repair.
The sophisticated technology of our formulations including multiple ingredients that work in balance and synergy is essential to the remarkable effectiveness of Zelens products.
All Zelens skincare products have been subjected to extensive independent clinical testing at international research institutes to prove both safety and efficacy. None of the products have been tested on animals.
